My order from Blue Lantern Teas arrived on Monday -only posting now cos I broke my elbow and had surgery last Friday. At my daughter’s w/o my tea equipment and it’s killing me not to have been able to dig into this order properly! If I were in the US, would be taking serious advantage of current free shipping offer.

Hallieod said

Thanks! It was not a lot of fun, definitely!

Ow! Wishing you a speedy recovery.

Thanks! I am now drinking this tea and enjoying it enormously, so you know the worst is over (for now, anyway). :)

The surprise (gift card) Della Terra order. Mainly a surprise because there were only a couple teas I ordered specifically.

Oh, and I got a bonus sample- Pumpkin Pie.

Got my Verdant order! :) I picked it up from the post office this morning, and went straight to work. Ugh. Finally home and opened it.

Got my yellow leaf storage jar, paired storage jars (which are so so gorgeous), and got a bit of teas. :)

1oz Bergamot Rose Laoshan black
Sample size Laoshan Black Chocolate Genmaicha
Sample size Laoshan Green
Sample size Yunnan white Jasmine
Sample size Yu Lu Yan Cha Black

I can’t drink the Jasmine today, as I have to go to bed in like … an hour and it’ll keep me up all night. But I’m going to quickly sip at the others! Ha! :D

Rie said

May those beautiful jars serve you well for a long time to come! Congratulations on finally getting them!! :D

Chizakura said

Hehe, thankyou very much! :D I’m very pleased with them, already happily filled two of the three. Teehee!

Rie said

Can I ask which special tea was chosen? (’v’*)

Chizakura said

You may! :D

Premium Taiwanese Assam went into Yellow Leaves Jar, Mi Xian Black went into one of the paired jars. Still deciding what to put into the other. :)

On thursday i received an adagio order of 6oz of chamomile, but little did i know how much 6oz was! I have two of my tins full to the brim with it now!!! At least it wasn’t expensive. (If anyone wants to swap for some black tea please message me and i’d be happy to give a few ounces away!)

Yesterday i received my very first order from verdant: 2oz each of golden fleece and jasmine silver needle. I am completely in love with both and i’ve already ordered the 5 for 5$ sampler (hoping for it to come tomorrow) as well as fill up a cart…. Ohh i need to stop :’)
